    TM,

    Just thinking when I went to school we were all taught how to cook cheaply, it is so sad that this is not compulsory.





    Pleased it went well x

    Can you imagine the guy telling her twenty times that he was doing an extremely important live broadcast and to keep the kids out of the way but she had to nip to the loo just as he was given the green light.

    I like how he closes his eyes in the end as he just couldn't take anymore

    Morning all.
    Just tried to do a very quick order at adsa before the 12midday cut off, rammed some things in my basket, went to checkout, then bang, my evouchers are still not there! grrr, hurry up adsa.



    TM, I find it much better (and cheaper) to drive/get the train to Hull, and go P&O ferries from there. Plus, when you get off on the other side, it is only 15 mins on the bus, as opposed to what I would expect to be a rather long bus journey on DFDS if you were going from Shields.
    If you do end up going, give me a shout, I can recommend a great hotel, and a fabulous place to go for your evening meal.

    Your vouchers....are you sure that you've requested them and not just checked your APG?

    DD read somewhere that she was the nanny. I really hope she didn't get into trouble

    And I can just imagine she had nipped to the loo as her pink t shirt (or is it pants ) are on show
    Also read that the kids are used to their dad skyping with his parents in usa and that the oldest one probably thought thats what daddy was doing. Poor thing getting pushed away by daddy

    Yes, I am sure I clicked the request vouchers button, off now to have a check.
